About EgyptAir

EgyptAir was founded in 1932 as Misr Airlines, and the company flies to over 70 destinations throughout the world. Although its head office and main hub are in Cairo, it also has many flights originating at Hurghada, Borg el Arab, Luxor and Sharm el-Sheikh International Airports. It has a fleet of 54 planes and a frequent flyer program known as EgyptAir Plus, the benefits of which include upgrades and a greater baggage allowance.

EgyptAir is a member of the Arabesk Airline Alliance with airlines such as Gulf Air and Middle East Airlines, and Arab Air Carriers Organization with Libyan Airlines and Kuwait Airways. EgyptAir flights are also part of the Star Alliance, and it has a codeshare partnership with 20 other airlines to widen the number of destinations it can fly to. It also has a number of subsidiaries namely AirCairo, AirSinai, and EgyptAir Cargo and Express.

How do I check in online with EgyptAir?

You can use EgyptAir online check-in to choose your seat and print your boarding pass from 48 hours before your flight is due to leave until 90 minutes before departure. The only exceptions are those passengers flying from Erbil and Baghdad in Iraq, and Juba in South Sudan. Additionally, if you are travelling from Dammam or Riyadh, you will be requested to print two copies of your boarding pass.

Once you have checked in and printed your boarding pass you may proceed straight to the gate on arrival at the airport. If you have baggage that needs to be placed in the hold, then there are handy EgyptAir Baggage Drop Counters in the airport to make this easy for you. The latest time for depositing baggage is one hour before departure, and the gate will close 30 minutes before the plane is due to leave.

To use online check-in you will need your name, your boarding code and one type of identification. Your e-ticket number, booking reference or even your frequent flyer number are all suitable but you will need to have already noted your frequent flyer membership number during your booking process.

What is my checked baggage allowance on EgyptAir?

The EgyptAir baggage policy allows you to check two bags of up to 23 kg each if you have an Economy ticket, but First and Business Class customers can take bags up to 32 kg. Any customers with Star Alliance membership cards can add an extra bag to their allowance matching the weight of their normal allowance. Irrespective of the weight of the bags, their overall dimensions cannot be greater than 158 cm when the height, length and width are added together. Additionally, no single item can weigh more than 32 kg on its own in order to safeguard the baggage operators. If any bag is found to be overweight it will either have to be repacked or sent by freight.

Except for flights to and from Canada and the USA, if you are travelling with infants, they also have a baggage allowance of one item of 10 kg or less. The overall dimensions for this must not exceed 115 cm. If your trip includes Canada or the USA, this allowance is increased to 23 kg but the dimensions remain the same.

If you are travelling with sports equipment, this can usually be transported free of charge in the hold if it is included in your normal baggage allowance. The same restrictions apply to this with regards to maximum weight and size, and any item over the limit of either will be charged a fee for excess baggage.

What hand luggage can I take on EgyptAir?

The EgyptAir hand luggage allowance permits Economy Class customers to take onboard one bag of up to 8 kg, and First and Business Class customers can take two bags of up to 8 kg. The number of bags that you are allowed to take onto the aircraft is purely based on the ticket purchased. Unlike checked luggage in the hold, possessing a Star Alliance membership card does not allow you to take any more than the allotted amount onto the plane.

If at all possible, any liquids, pastes, creams, aerosols or gels need to be packed into the luggage that you will be placing in the hold. This is because there are regulations concerned with taking these types of items onboard with you. If you want to pack some into your cabin baggage, they must be in containers that are 100ml or smaller, and all should fit into a 20 cm x 20 cm, clear, plastic bag which will need to be removed from your luggage as you pass through security. Other items that will need to be scanned include electronic equipment such as tablets and laptops. Please make sure they have enough power to be turned on in case this needs to be checked.
